A Metropolitan Police officer has been charged with further offences as part of an ongoing investigation by Hertfordshire Constabulary. 

David Carrick, 47, had previously been charged with 29 offences against eight victims including rape, coercive and controlling behaviour and sexual assault. 

On Wednesday, 16 March he was charged with a further twelve offences. He will appear via video link at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Monday, 21 March. 

Seven of the 12 new charges relate to one of the existing eight victims. The remaining five relate to three new victims.

The charges are: 

  • Four counts of sexual assault which allegedly took place between 2018 and 2020. 
  • Three counts of rape which allegedly took place between 2018 and 2020. 
  • One count of rape which allegedly took place in 2004. 
  • Two counts of assault by penetration which allegedly took place between 2003 and 2009. 
  • One count of attempted rape which allegedly took place in 2009.

PC Carrick was arrested by Hertfordshire Constabulary in October 2021. He was immediately suspended.   

Prior to his suspension, he was attached to the Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection Command.   


We recognise that these are extremely serious and concerning allegations. Referrals have been made to the Independent Office for Police Conduct as the investigation has progressed.    

The Met’s Directorate of Professional Standards continues to monitor developments closely and will provide whatever support it can to Hertfordshire officers.   

National regulations dictate that any misconduct proceedings must await the outcome of the criminal case.
